According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rollover car crashes are extremely dangerous road accidents with a higher fatality rate than other types of car crashes. To put it in perspective, out of approximately 9 million car accidents, only about 2% involve a rollover. However, rollover car crashes have accounted for nearly 35% of all deaths from car accidents in past years. In fact, only head-on and side collisions account for more vehicle occupant deaths per year than rollover car crashes. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a rollover car crash, the rollover car accident lawyers at Payer & Associates can help.
How Rollover Car Crashes Happen & How They Can Be Avoided
No doubt about it, a vehicle rollover is one of the worst things that can happen to you on the road. But, as an injury victim or if you’ve lost a family member in a rollover car crash, it’s important to understand that rollovers don’t have to be so devastating, and that’s why you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and losses after a rollover car crash. For example, here are just a few ways the severity of rollover accidents and injuries may be decreased:
- Better use of rollover-avoidance technologies by auto manufacturers
- More safety-focused vehicle design that accounts for rollover risk
- Enhanced vehicle safety systems
- Stronger government regulations over the auto industry
- Not altering vehicles with performance aftermarket parts and tires
- Adherence to posted speed limits
- Increased use of safety belts
Traveling at a high speed increases a vehicle’s tendency to roll over. At the same time, speed makes more demands on a driver’s skill and attention to the road. Thus unsurprisingly, the NHTSA reports that approximately 40% of rollover car crashes involve excessive speed. Whether your rollover car crash was caused by speeding, unsafe vehicle design, aftermarket modifications, or another issue, the personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at Payer & Associates can help you obtain maximum compensation for your losses.
